Rheonix Literia PatternAlert Assay

Rheonix has launched its Listeria PatternAlert assay, a method to quickly identify molecular patterns from Listeria strains. The assay detects the presence or absence of independently occurring genetic targets that can sort Listeria strains into thousands of potential patterns. Each pattern generated by the assay covers a group of strains and can also include multiple species of Listeria. Running on the firm's Encompass Optimum platform, the assay provides results in six hours after a positive screen without requiring an isolate. The method will help food producers to identify and trace back sources of Listeria contamination, allowing users to minimize the risk of contamination and recall.
